Marvel’s “Avengers” is the #3 motion picture revenue generator of all-time, behind only Avatar & Titanic. Disney/Marvel has 4 more “Avengers” movies coming out and speaking as a geek that knows the storylines, I believe they’re all going to be bigger than the original “Avengers”. (Note: Captain America: Civil War is effectively an Avengers title)
Marvel’s recent “Guardians of the Galaxy” was the #1 revenue generating movie of 2014. They have “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” coming up in 2 years.
Additionally, Disney’s recent release of the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” trailer & acknowledgement that “Frozen 2” is definitely in the works by “Elsa’s” Idina Menzel is all icing on the cake.
Why am I bringing this up?
